For anyone who’s ever complained about having to cross the harbour, there’s now a new and much swankier way to do it (that doesn’t involve cramming into the crowded Star Ferry).
Starting this July, the iconic aqua luna Chinese junk boat with its beautiful red sails is now offering “Harbour Discovery” tours that will be sure to impress locals and tourists alike.
Sailing from 12pm to 5pm every Tuesday and Friday, the aqua luna lets you hop-on and hop-off at any of its four stops in Tsim Sha Tsui, Central, Wanchai and Hung Hom.
Whether you get on or off is another question, as the aqua luna’s comfy sofa beds and range of cocktails and snacks on board might just convince you to stay on board for the full 45-minute ride.
Start in Central with some breakfast at IFC, and then sail over to Tsim Sha Tsui for some retail therapy at the shopping mecca that is Harbour City.
If you have the energy, take a romantic stroll along the Avenue of Stars and then board the aqua luna in Hung Hom to get back to Wanchai or Central.
The aqua luna harbour discovery tour is priced at HK$100 for adults and HK$80 for children. For tickets, call +852 2116 8821 or visit www.aqualuna.com.hk.
